1. Judging by what you have seen so far this season which 3 teams do you now think will go up from the Championship ?
Wolves
Leeds
Villa
.. though I'm not sure who will be through the play-offs.
Probably not us !


2. What are you looking forward to most at this moment in time ?
Getting a different job. I work shifts and after nearly a year it's starting to grate a bit, getting up at 3am.
I just want a bog standard 9-5 where I can walk away at the end of the day and switch off. I don't need to earn a lot of money, just something easy without too many responsibilities. I've done all that. I've paid my mortgage. Now I just want to be an average joe.
So hard to find one though ..


3. Which Radio stations do you listen to ?
Predominantly talkSPORT and Classic FM.
Pretty much 95% of my listening, such as it is, is spent on those two.
I've never found a mainstream radio station I like as I'm such a music snob and years of working in music retail often meant the last thing I wanted to do when I got in was listen to music. Even now, it's only just becoming a regular form of relaxation again.
The new gf listens to BBC6 a lot so I've been getting into that. Love Huey on Saturday mornings - saw his band this year and he's a great bloke and plays some interesting stuff - and Iggy Pop's show is decent too, playing lots of jazz, though I could do with less of the garage punk stuff.


4. Have you ever been asked to leave by those in charge (football stadium, nightclub, Pub, etc) ?
Never at the football. Quite the opposite in fact, after a Saints fan was ejected from The Dell for abusing my (75 year old) stepdad and me at the Alli Dia defeat. He complained we were Leeds fans, but as I casually slipped the Southampton FC membership card from my wallet, he was already walking (it was the only way to get tickets at a ground that only held 15k, believe me!).
Having worked in clubs for a large chunk of my adulthood, I know most staff and bouncers round here and only once have I been thrown out.
Without going into too much detail, I was in the ladies' loo getting to know a lass at the time .. :shh:


5. If cooking what do you consider your signature dish ?
Probably a salmon, mushroom and noodle thing, or I'm not bad at roasts these days. Depends on the occasion, I guess.
Actually, scrub that : a bacon, banana and peanut butter bagel :mrgreen:

1. Judging by what you have seen so far this season which 3 teams do you now think will go up from the Championship ?

Villa, Fulham, Leeds (I think we will get back on track) :shifty:

2. What are you looking forward to most at this moment in time ?

Going away in 2 weeks time. Were going to try a Hoeseasons break, just not sure which part of the country yet?

3. Which Radio stations do you listen to ?

Never listen tbh unless Leeds are on. Don't have it on at all in my current job. Years ago in a different job, I remember the Archers being on and loving it.

4. Have you ever been asked to leave by those in charge (football stadium, nightclub, Pub, etc) ?

Apart from the odd stupid brawl here and there many years ago. Me and a mate went to watch Barnsley vrs Everton in the 1989 FA Cup tie at Oakwell. Problem was we didn't have any tickets, so in our wisdom we thought we would climb over the fences to get in. Anyway has you can imagine not so easy with thousands of pairs of eyes on you. Needless to say we got caught and was marched along the side of the pitch infront of the Everton fans (who were shouting all sorts, but all good humoured) into the block bit at the opposite side of the away end. We were sat down had our photo taken, lectured and then sent on our way. Anyway they needn't have bothered, because as we were walking back down one side of the ground a oldish guy stopped us and asked if we wanted any tickets and gave us two. So we got in anyway. :D Barnsley ended up losing 1-0

I make a mean Chilli Con Carne

Once worked with a bloke that was fanatical about The Archers, when on shift he would work through his tea breaks and take them while it was on.

1. Judging by what you have seen so far this season which 3 teams do you now think will go up from the Championship ?

I'd like to say us but after watching the Wednesday game i don't think so (hope i'm wrong)

Cardiff
Fulham
Sheffield Wednesday



2. What are you looking forward to most at this moment in time ?

Xmas, my first one as a father. I honestly can't stand Xmas but having a new child and seeing her open her presents on that day may change that for me.



3. Which Radio stations do you listen to ?

None, all crap although when i used to live in the UK i really enjoyed Test Match Special for the cricket and when I was young listening to the football on Saturday afternoons.



4. Have you ever been asked to leave by those in charge (football stadium, nightclub, Pub, etc) ?

Parramatta Leagues Club here in Australia, it was after spending the day at Rosehill races (Golden slipper day) and winning lots of money then we headed off to the club and won even more money so the security staff were watching us so i headed up to the bar and it was not long after recovering from breaking my leg in 2 places (8 months incapacitated) so i has hobbling along and they said i was intoxicated and threw me out. I walked at and turned around at the club/security staff and shouted i put a curse on you and your club!!!! Parramatta has not won a sporting event since 2001 when it happened so the curse continues :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: true i did have a few drinks that day but not enough to slay a baby elephant, funnily enough the places we went to after had no problem with serving me etc


5. If cooking what do you consider your signature dish ?


Stir fry (chicken, beef, pork etc)
Owners come and go but Leeds United will be there forever, for the fans - keep Marching on Together.

1. Judging by what you have seen so far this season which 3 teams do you now think will go up from the Championship ?

At the start of last season answering this question you’d have said Newcastle and possibly Brighton, but this season it’s really not obvious. Warnock has experience of getting teams out of this division, so Cardiff, Villa are starting to tick and Bristol City have had some eye-catching results but I’ll go with Wolves

2. What are you looking forward to most at this moment in time ?

Getting a job

3. Which Radio stations do you listen to ?

Don’t listen regularly. Test match special is a great way to make a boring car trip go by faster and I like the news at five on radio 4, PM I believe it’s called

4. Have you ever been asked to leave by those in charge (football stadium, nightclub, Pub, etc) ?

My goody two shoes answer is no. Caught the attention of an American cop once when I fell over a bit drunkenly in Houston…..

5. If cooking what do you consider your signature dish ?

I do a mean roast lamb, but my paprika pork with mushrooms in a creamy sauce is my own idea and Mrs MW loves it!

1) Wolves, Cardiff and Leeds.
2) On Sunday we booked a crossing from Southampton to New York on the Queen Mary 2 for next year. So at the moment we're buzzing about that.
3) Radio 2 or 4 in the car. Other than that it'll be CDs.
4) Not that I can remember. I've been refused entry in a few places, mind.
5) I like cooking but can't claim a signature dish as such. I've done a chilli with slow-cooked brisket a few times and that goes down well. I tend not to follow recipes (except for that chilli), it's more a case of seeing what I've got and chucking it all together.

First time having a crack at this, so here goes.

1. Judging by what you have seen so far this season which 3 teams do you now think will go up from the Championship ?

Judging on what I've seen this season, anyone could get promoted. I can't see Bristol City and Sheff Utd sustaining there promising starts, and that can also be said for Cardiff. I think Wolves have a big chance to go up, and I think Villa will get it right too. I'll put Leeds in there as the third team, and be an optimist for once!

2. What are you looking forward to most at this moment in time ?

I'm going to a friend's wedding on Saturday. Never been to one before, so I'm excited to see what the fuss is all about. A great friend of mine too, who really looked after me when I moved to university. Also the first of the group of friends my age to get married, so its an exciting time. The lass he's marrying is lovely too, so I couldn't be happier for him.

3. Which Radio stations do you listen to ?

Not so much a fan of listening to the radio, I prefer playing music through my phone or the occasional CD. Talksport is the only station I really listen to. I do enjoy Drive at 4pm, I think Darren Gough is great.

4. Have you ever been asked to leave by those in charge (football stadium, nightclub, Pub, etc) ?

Never from a football stadium *touch wood*. At university, I got into a habit of being chucked out of nightclubs, most of the time was for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The most notable occasion was in a nightclub in Newcastle called "The Den", which has since been redesigned into something else. My mate and I agreed that whenever a particular song came on, we would have to strip to it, regardless of location, being that on a night out, in the design studio, the pub, anywhere. I took the idea from the lads holiday to Magaluf during the summer, but it is a lot easy to get away with such antics in such a place. The song came on in The Den, and I saw my mate looking at me from across the bar. Without a thought, I proceeded to take my shirt off and wave it. The bouncer got a hold of me pretty quick after that, and chucked me out literally with my jeans around my ankles. This was during freshers too, so I made quite the statement with my new course mates.

5. If cooking what do you consider your signature dish ?

Pot noodle. I cannot cook to save my life.
